Maryland Votes for Animals (MVFA) will host a Humane Scorecard Kick-Off Party on Monday, August 9th, 2010. The event will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m at Yellowfin Restaurant located at 2840 Solomons Island Road in Edgewater, MD 21037. Tickets for the event can be purchased here. Tickets are $15 if purchased by August 1st and $20 at the door. Appetizers will be served.
In conjunction with the Humane Society Legislative Fund, MVFA will announce results for their legislative scorecard; this scorecard ranks the votes on animal protection bills by Maryland?s legislators in the[masked] legislative sessions. Additionally, eight Maryland legislators will be honored with Humane Legislative Champion Awards for their 100%+ support on animal legislation in the state of Maryland.
The event will feature Mike Markarian, President of the Humane Society Legislative Fund as guest speaker. The HSLF is the lobbying affiliate of the Humane Society of the United States, the nation?s largest animal protection organization, and has worked to enact laws that protect animals at both the state and federal levels for the last 15 years. He has appeared on The Today Show, MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News.
Valerie Pringle, Board of Director?s member says, ?Maryland Votes for Animals is honored to sponsor this event in conjunction with the Humane Society Legislative Fund, and is especially privileged to have Mike Markarian in attendance. Maryland currently ranks 40th out of 50 states in animal protection legislation. This event will help fund MVFA?s efforts to improve Maryland?s ranking.?
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet state politicians and voice their concerns about the current dismal state of animal cruelty in Maryland as well as socialize with like-minded people. The Maryland Legislative Scorecard will be available so attendees can check on their legislators' scores.
